It’s time for another 5 Fandom Friday! If you’re new around here and aren’t sure what I’m talking about you can read about it here and here. This week the topic is “Black Friday Purchases I Would Sacrifice A Night Of Sleep For.” Now, I don’t do Black Friday. If I do go out, it’s not until later in the day. I enjoy sleep. I don’t enjoy fighting crowds over a toaster. But as someone who’s slept outside overnight for Hall H, I can’t throw too much shade. Instead of Black Friday Purchases, I’m going to go with experiences or events I’d throw sleep out the window for.
1. Marvel Hall H at Comic-Con
Which I’ve done twice, and even though I always say “never again,” I’d do it again in a heartbeat. It’s an experience. It’s fun. It’s a great way to make new friends.
2. Nsync Reunion Tickets
If they ever announced a reunion tour or concert, I’d be all over it as soon as I stopped crying. You could say Nsync was my first serious fandom. I traveled all over to see them. I lost count of the number of times I saw them live but I think it’s around 13.
3. Unlimited Airfare
I like to travel, but my wallet doesn’t always allow me that luxury. I’m not even talking worldwide, even if it was just the U.S., I’d sacrifice sleep to purchase the deal. I have friends all over the country and it would be great to just hop on a plane whenever I wanted to go see them.
(Don’t ask why I used this gif. I couldn’t find anything good airplane related, so I went with this. I mean, they ARE flying. It counts.)
4. Baltimore Orioles World Series Tickets
Granted, it’s all done online now but if I had to, I would. Hopefully this will become a reality in the next few years!
5. Unlimited Tattoos
It would have to be an amazing artist, but this is another one I’d put on my list. It would be great to just go and get a tattoo without checking the bank account first. Of course I’d put the same amount of thought into my ideas and wouldn’t just run off to get any tattoo.
There you have it! Now, what would you lose sleep for?
